Massive double standard: Twitter never acted on hundreds of death threats from mail bomber while Gab singled out for synagogue shooting

The Left never misses an opportunity to demonstrate its hypocrisy, and we’ve seen a great deal of it in the past few weeks heading into the 2018 midterms.

Case in point: The difference in the way the Left treats its favored – and disfavored – social media platforms in the wake of an incident or tragedy.

You may have heard recently that a nut job named Cesar Sayoc, an alleged supporter of POTUS Donald Trump, sent phony bombs to prominent Democrats and the most dishonest cable news outlet on the air today, CNN.

It turns out that Sayoc was quite a prolific Twitter user, as he used the platform to post in excess of 240 threats to 50 different people and without any penalty whatsoever. The media’s reaction to Twitter? Tepid at best.

Less than a week later, after a rabid anti-Semite (and Trump opponent) walked into The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and killed 11 people while wounding four police officers, the same disgustingly dishonest “mainstream” media essentially forced social platform Gab offline because the alleged shooter, Robert Bowers, posted anti-Semitic material on his Gab account.

Why is one platform allowed to survive such media scrutiny but the other isn’t? Well, because one – Twitter – was founded by an avowed liberal/progressive/Leftist, Jack Dorsey, and the other, Gab, was founded by free-speech advocate and non-Leftist Andrew Torba.

CNN did manage to get around to discovering that “Sayoc tweeted more than 240 threats to at least 50 public officials, news organizations and media personalities.” So not only was CNN’s interest piqued because the guy’s a Trump supporter, they were angry that he dared to target media people and their own network. (Related: Is “MAGA bomber” Cesar Sayoc a patsy? He first told authorities he never sent fake bombs to Democrats.)

But Twitter got what was essentially the media’s equivalent of a slap on the wrist. The network noted:

The threats, and Twitter’s apparent inaction regarding them, raise new questions regarding social media and radicalization. In this instance, Twitter may well have provided Sayoc with the material that radicalized him, and then it stood idly by as that radicalization led to hundreds of threats.
